Windows 7: Life or Death computer mod.

Life or Death computer mod.

Small Acer aspire that I finally got around to a full clean. Original drive was --recover - reserved - system.
With the help of diskpart and partition wizard I deleted the recover and made a new 100m at the start of the unallocated section. Next removed active from reserved and put it on my new partition. Booted startup repair the 3 times as per Greg's info and then deleted old reserved and added the whole thing to the system partition.
Only thing that did not work was the system restore points. Could not find path but running the windows file check repaired that.
And all of the info to do this came from posts and tutorials on this forum many thanks to all.

Oh yes, about the life and death in the title. My wife is an artist and ALL her pictures reside on that computer.
